I was finally able to get the Beasty home today. It was quite a fight getting out of the neighbors yard. It had sunk into the dirt and with it not running it took all my Yukon had to pull it out. We…Continue

Fun with gas..

No pictures but had a ton o fun with gas today. Got the beasty running enough to get to the gas station 3 blocks away. Filled up and when I was getting back in to drive home I see a stream of gas pouring out of 3 places. So, not sure what to do I jumped in and drove home with fingers crossed that none was on th exhaust. Made it home, leapt out, ok wallered, and looked under and......nothing. ??? What? So I got the jack and had my son crawl under to see what he could see and he found the gas…See More

New Bee first post to say hi.

Hi all, I am a newbee. I found this website while searching for general repairs and rebuilds of mid 80's class C's. I don't have mine yet but will in a couple weeks. My neighbor has an old searay boat with an inboard motor that he wants me to fix. For fixing it he is going to give me his 1983? ( I think) rockwood Ina ford chassis. I will be taking lots of pictures to document the rebuild for my purposes and will share them here if everyone would like to see them. Anyway I plan on picking your… Continue

Yes, we painted it. It wasnt hard at all. Watched a couple of you tube videos first, for some tips that were very helpful. It was very satisfying to see the difference (profile pix shows the "before"). Thanks, yes, the birch in this trailer is amazing! Re-shallac'd it. Not hard either. Again, you tube videos are very helpful (dont remember which ones).
